Light Legs™ don’t just make you feel good, they also enhance the way your legs look. Still deciding if compression tights are for you? Read our Light Legs™ Compression Tights 101 guide below.
What are compression tights?
If you sit or stand for too long, whether that’s at work or on a long-haul flight, the lack of movement in your legs can cause blood to pool around your ankles instead of circulating around your body.1 Compression hosiery is designed to apply pressure to the veins and muscles in your lower legs, with the pressure gradually lowering as it goes up the leg.1
Our Fibre Firm™ technology provides gradual compression from the ankle all the way up the leg (10 mmHg at the ankle, 5 mmHg at the calf and 3.5 mmHg at the thigh). This constant pressure supports the movement of your calf muscle and the veins and valves within, which encourages blood flow and circulation to other parts of the body, reducing any swelling and pain in your lower legs.1
